Apparently, we’ve had a lot of rain lately. The water board reckon that it hasn’t made much difference:
Warragamba Dam had received just 30 millimetres of rain since Friday, a spokeswoman for the Sydney Catchment Authority said. “The rainfall we’ve had so far hasn’t been enough to make a significant impact [on dam levels].”
They also have a neat page detailing Sydney’s dam levels over the last few years, and showing the positive effects of the water restrictions. Without the restrictions, Sydney would have run out of water in early 2007.
